It will be meeting number five for the two in top-flight football, but only the third time for City Stars as the host team.
It’s been a win a piece from the previous two games hosted by City Stars. While Bidco won the first one 2-1 in July 2021 in Ruaraka with goals from David Orem and City Stars’ old boy David Gateri. Ezekiel Odera scored a consolation penalty.
City Stars claimed the next one 2-0 in Thika Stadium in October of the same year with goals from Nicholas Kipkirui and Erick Ombija.
